Exercising the right to take a photograph in a public place
More than 300 photographers were outside New Scotland Yard police HQ in London, England today, exercising their right to take a photograph in a public place.
"Amendments to the Counter Terrorism Act - which comes into force in the UK today - allow for the arrest and imprisonment of anyone who takes pictures of police officers, and some other public servants, 'likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism'. The NUJ fears that the law will be used to stop news photographers doing legitimate work." More: http://www.nuj.org.uk/innerPagenuj.html?docid=1116
